Social Distancing Fun in Asheville, NC
Updated: Sep 2, 2020
We recently took a trip over to beautiful Asheville, NC for a little change of scenery and fun. If you are looking for a getaway this summer, Asheville has so much to do! Though keep in mind a lot of places are still closed or offering only take out. Midweek is the best time to go because crowds and wait times are smaller. Of course use your best judgement, wear a mask, stay safe, and socially distance!
